Stop in the name of safety! Our technicians are trained to perform 1986 Mazda 626 brake checks, services, and repairs. Schedule your appointment.
Getting your 1986 626’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can ask for a free brake check at any time. Schedule one on its own or request a brake check during a regular service, like a battery replacement. However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Mazda 626 like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like Mazda generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes checking the parking brake, too. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 1986 Mazda 626 brakes. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 1986 Mazda 626’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your 626. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Mazda 626 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Mazda's standards.
Your Mazda 626 may be powered by a strong engine. One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 1986 Mazda 626 brake repairs. Our brake repair services include brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
